For the first time since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine began in Feb. 2022, no civilians were injured by Russian shelling in the Donetsk Oblast on March 7, Donetsk Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko reported on Telegram.
He clarified that the situation remains tense, with constant enemy shelling.
Near Donetsk, Russia launched an overnight missile attack on the village of Memryk, damaging three houses. Avdiyivka came under fire on the morning of March 8, with Russian shells hitting three streets and the outskirts of the Avdiyivka Coke Plant. Krasnohorivka and Kamyanka were targeted in the Ocheretynska community, while Kurakhove and Kurakhivka came under fire in Kurakhivska community.
Near Horlivka, Russian proxies hammered Kostiantynivka — 18 houses and a school were damaged during five attacks.
Near Lysychansk, 10 hits were recorded in Torske and Zarichne.
The situation in Donetsk Oblast remains extremely difficult. The Ukrainian military is holding back the Russian offensive near Bakhmut, preventing the enemy's attempts to advance.
